In 2012, a group of New Zealand actors were given the unprecedented chance to perform Shakespeare -- in their native Te Reo Māori (Māori language) -- at London's legendary Globe Theatre. Road to the Globe follows the theatre company as they confront their fears, struggle with their lines, and ultimately lift each other up on their journey to open the historic Globe to Globe festival with a performance of Troilus & Cressida.

Fans of Nā Loea: The Masters (featured in Pacific Heartbeat Season 3) will enjoy this second installment of stories that beautifully depict the lives of those who are considered masters in Hawaiian culture. Mac Poepoe is a Native Hawaiian fisherman and a community leader on Moloka`i who has dedicated his life ensuring that the ocean, or “icebox,” will be well-stocked for generations to come. Herbert Hoe recognized how the widespread health afflictions of the Native Hawaiian people impaired their ability to care for themselves, and created his `Ai Pono diet program utilizing the traditional foods of ancient Hawaiians.
